Album Review: The Subways - 'Money And Celebrity' The Subways Tickets

Tides turn from indie to pop

Album Review: The Subways - 'Money And Celebrity'

Album Info

  • Release Date: September 19, 2011
  • Label: Cooking Vinyl
  • Fact: They recorded their album with Stephen Street
3 / 10 It’s a party/And don’t you know it don’t get much better!” (‘It’s a Party’). No-one’s saying The Subways haven’t pioneered a new paradigm for the punk-rock genre, but after two albums treading water in the tricky oceans of landfill indie, the tides are turning. Single ‘We Don’t Need Money To Have A Good Time’, which should – in a dearth of cheap, blistering, recession-ready pop-rants – be absolutely zeitgeist-bothering is just more 10-a-penny tedium from Welwyn Garden City’s rock’n’roll quacks. The absence of irony is almost commendable, but ultimately you have to wonder who keeps inviting them to all these parties.
